Hello everyone! My name is Jenn and I am a licensed artist from Central Pennsylvania.
Hubby and I recently purchased a 12 acre farm (in desperate need of repair) and are hoping to rebuild the coop that came with the property in preparation for our first small flock in the Spring.
I have never raised or cared for chickens before, but am an anxious to learn all I can and am so grateful to have found this website!
Country living is not new to us, but farming is, and I think the info and community found here will be wonderful for us.

Looking forward to "meeting" you all and learning all I can.

hello I am also from central pa, milton that is I am raising 25 right now in the house and cant wait to get them in the coop. this is my first attempt, and love it, so fare. maybe when you get yours we could trade of rosters to keep good blood line going, all of my birds are 3 weeks old now, I have 10 buff orpingtons, 10 barrad rocks and 5 araucanas AKA easter eggers. and then I had bought 5 sexlinks for the wife, she just had to have some fresh eggs, its funny now she is all proud she can go into the coop and hold them and I swear the one is a dog because I was digging potatoes yesterday and she followed me all over, and bonus for her was, she ate the worms when I was digging potato's got to love them or eat them. lol
